Bulk Discounts app FAQ

Does Bulk Discounts have the ability to create discounts based on the number of items ordered?

No. Bulk Discounts is a discount code generator that creates large sets of discount codes to be used at checkout. Discounts based on large or bulk orders of an item are called quantity breaks. You can search the app store for apps that provide this functionality.

Is there a delay before the discount code sets become active?

Yes. The Bulk Discounts app requires some time to generate all the discount codes in your store because it works with Shopify's API to generate them. The API has a call limit applied to it to prevent instability for large-scale tasks such as mass generation of discount codes through this app. The Shopify API documentation has more information on the API call limit.

Is there a delay before the discount code sets are deleted?

Yes. As with activating discount code sets, the system requires time to delete a discount code set for the same reasons that it takes time to generate a discount code set. Shopify's API has a call limit imposed on it to prevent instability for large-scale tasks such as deletion of a large discount code set.
